Hair Loss? It May Be Iron Deficiency
Researches over the years reveal that high fat diets increase testosterone level, which is linked to hair loss. So, if you are eating red meat, pay extra caution to avoid hair loss. Walnuts Walnuts fall in the hair-friendly category as they are a storehouse of protein, omega-6 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin (B1, B6 and B9) and iron. All these nutrients reduce hair loss, but here is a word of caution: walnut has traces of selenium, a mineral that may cause hair loss in people who have either too much of it in the system or are selenium deficient.
